    No, if you order with Ubuntu, it will not activate if you try and install Windows (unless you purchase a license). The cost difference you're seeing is the license cost.

    oh ok thanks, glad i didn't buy, never tried ubuntu,

    but was just looking at my options, as usual always on a tight budget, but just pulled the trigger on a Dell Outlet inspiron 15 7577 gaming laptop

    for just under 600 UK notes the exact model in the retail store was around £100 more, just could not justify spending any more really,

    thanks again for the reply

    Hi, could you be more clear please? If I buy a license (of the cheap ones for around $10) I can install Windows without problems, correct? There isn't any kind of weird lock that won't let me install Windows on it, right?

    Thanks.

    You can purchase a license for windows and install it without issue. I would caution you with the $10 windows "licenses" as they are often OEM keys that are being sold illegally.
